Ways to get on the water

Cumberland Lake Park

In many ways the Comox Valley is defined by water.

Comox is surrounded by the Salish Sea on three sides, wildlife-rich rivers course through the heart of Courtenay, whilst Cumberland backs on to the mountain walled Comox Lake. Above all of which towers the year round ice fields of the iconic Comox Glacier framed by the peaks of Strathcona Provincial Park with its many lakes. Waterways and how we enjoy the water have shaped, and continue to shape, the lives of those living here in the beautiful Comox Valley, but also the many happy visitors that get to experience our home.


The abundance of aquatic surroundings are a playground for those willing to get a little bit wet. With a variety of waterways ranging from lakes, rivers, and ocean expanse, the ways in which to safely enjoy the water are numerous.
